The Little Green Sheep Newborn Baby Pouch Review and Giveaway

When I was asked to review The Little Green Sheep Newborn Baby Pouches, I was pretty keen as I was familiar with the company. I bought a waterproof Bednest mattress protector and two fitted sheets from The Little Green Sheep when I had Jumpy, as all reviews were glowing and mentioned a perfect fit for the mattress. I was really impressed with the quality of those products.  I used them for just over six months with Jumpy and when I got them out for Wriggly, they still looked brand new.

The Little Green Sheep

I have to say I like a brand that is passionate and genuinely wants to help improve people’s lives. The Little Green Sheep only use organic cotton that is free from pesticides and herbicides. Over 60% of their products are made in Great Britain and they donate 5% of their profits to charity. In their e-brochure, founders Mark Nicholls and Paul Maurice tell us: “Don’t worry, we don’t hug trees or grow our own vegetables (well some of us do!); we simply set out to produce products that are the very best for babies and better for parents too; and it’s this which drives us today to continue to use natural and organic materials.”

Little Green Sheep kindly sent Wriggly her flannelette baby pouch a couple of days after she was born and we started using it straight away. My first impressions were that the material was incredibly soft, silky almost and it was easy to slip on, even when my baby was asleep.

The Little Green Sheep Newborn Pouch

The pouch is designed for newborns up to three months old, before they start using sleeping bags.  My little one seems cosy in her pouch. It keeps her warm whilst giving her legs freedom of movement inside as you can see on the picture above. The stretchy waistband sits just under her arms and unlike a blanket; there is no risk of the pouch getting over Wriggly’s face. It is also perfect for nursing at night. I can just take her out of the Bednest without turning lights on. After her feed, I can return her to the Bednest and do not need to fumble for blankets.

You can either get a ‘plush’ baby pouch, suitable all year round, or a flannelette one. The latter is ideal in hot weather. At the moment, Wriggly wears it at night on top of a vest only as it is so warm. I have no problem with her legs being in direct contact with the fabric as it is made of 100% organic cotton. That is really important to us as Wriggly’s older sisters both suffer from eczema. Pure cotton is the most comfortable material for sensitive skin like theirs.

We will be going away soon and as a family of six, we have limited space for luggage in our car. The pouch will be ideal to pack for travelling as it is a lot less bulky than a sleeping bag or a blanket.

If you are not sure what to get for a new baby, the pouch would make an ideal practical present.
